Flames look to end drought in Anaheim

Calgary (31-18-4) at Anaheim (27-24-5), 10:00 pm EST

ANAHEIM, California (Ticker) -- For over five years, the Calgary

Flames have not enjoyed playing on "The Pond."

The Flames will try to snap an eight-game losing streak at the

Honda Center when they visit the Anaheim Ducks on Wednesday.

Calgary has not won in Anaheim since January 19, 2004. In its

only other visit to the Honda Center this season, the Flames

were handed a 3-2 loss.

Matthew Lombardi and Dustin Boyd each netted a shorthanded goal

in the second period as Calgary snapped a four-game losing

streak Monday with a 6-2 triumph over the Montreal Canadiens.

Mike Cammalleri and Rene Bourque each recorded a goal and an

assist and defenseman Dion Phaneuf and David Moss also tallied

for the Flames, who suffered a 2-1 loss to the Ducks in Calgary

on Saturday.

All-Star Jean-Sebastien Giguere, who has been in and out of the

lineup recently due to his struggles in net, made 26 saves in

that one.

Making his eighth start in the calendar year, the former Conn

Smythe Trophy winner won for just the second time in his last 11

starts.

"I was able to see the puck very well," Giguere said. "No

turnovers, and the guys kept the puck to the outside.

Altogether, we played a great game against a great team. I was

seeing the puck very well and the guys did a good job moving

guys from in front of the net. It was a great road game."
